Pulpit Supply

A service of the Presbytery of Des Moines is to provide churches a list of supply preachers who lead worship for churches which have no pastor, or when a pastor is away.  Pulpit supply is intended to be a Sunday-by-Sunday relationship.  If a church intends to invite the same preacher for more than two consecutive weeks in a given month, Presbytery approval is required through the Church Professional Task Force (CPTF).  If this situation occurs because of an emergency or time constraints, the CPTF must be informed.

The approved Pulpit Supply List of the Presbytery is for the use of churches when seeking persons to fill pulpits I the absence of the pastor.  Churches without installed or appointed pastors may only use persons from this list to fill pulpits.  If there is a desire to use someone who is not on the list, permission from CPTF is required.  Churches with an installed or appointed pastor or commissioned ruling elder (CRE) may use the list or may invite another person of their choosing with the permission of the pastor and/or session.

  • The minimum fee for pulpit supply:
    • $150 per Sunday for one service, plus actual mileage at the IRS professional rate.
    • $200 per Sunday for two services, plus actual mileage at the IRS professional rate.
  • The minimum fee for moderating sessions of churches without a regular pastor: $50 per meeting plus actual mileage at the IRS professional rate.
  • The IRS professional rate for 2021 is $.56 per mile.
